Thank You from The LCB
The Lancashire Cricket Board would like to thank everyone that completed the second annual National Cricket Playing Survey.
Lancashire had a total of 2039 completed which compared to 1368 is an increase of 671 or 49%.
Nationally more than 37,000 responded to the survey compared to the 21,000 in 2013. The big task now comes for us to look at what people are saying and act on the comprehensive and wide-ranging feedback received.
Devised as part of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) strategic plan, Champion Counties, the survey’s responses give ECB and LCB a greater understanding of what amateur cricketers want from the sport, which formats they prefer and how it fits best with busy, modern lifestyles.
The findings will support ECB’s wider plans to invest more than £96 million into community cricket over the next four years across its national network of 39 County Cricket Boards.
Paul Bryson, Clubs and Leagues Manager for the LCB said: “I'd like to thank everyone that completed and promoted the survey this year, particularly the Clubs and Leagues who have assisted us immensely. We have had an excellent response with an increase of 49% completed surveys compared to 2013. The feedback will help us continue the good work carried out already from last year's survey and with a bigger response help us understand better what our recreational cricketers want from the game."
